Augusta Chooses Tigers

Missouri has added a big piece of their 2013 class, landing four-star defensive tackle Josh Augusta from Peoria Central (Ill.)

Missouri has the newest member of their class of 2013 in defensive tackle Josh Augusta.

"Missouri for Josh," Peoria Central head coach Tim Thornton reported to Scout.

The 6'5, 275-lb defensive tackle is a four-star prospect and held additional offers from Illinois and Michigan State, who were among his final choices.

As a senior, Augusta recorded 16 tackles for loss and six sacks. He also played tight end in high school and is also a member of the school's varsity basketball team.

Following a previous visit to Mizzou, Augusta said, "I like their academics and their coaches a lot."

Augusta is the first commit from the state of Illinois for the Tigers in this class.
