Gulf Shores’ Titi commits to North Carolina State softball

No. 20-ranked prospect in Class of 2024 to join Wolfpack program in ACC

Gulf Shores junior catcher and third baseman Tia Titi announced her commitment to the North Carolina State University softball program after her time with the Dolphins.

Titi had a busy summer and it culminated with her verbal commitment Saturday, Sept. 24.

“I want to thank my family for all of their support along my journey. I want to thank Coach Josh and Coach Jay with Unity Johnson/Ross,” Titi wrote in her announcement tweet where she also thanked Unity Coach Tommy Bain and hitting coach Jody Hodo. “This is a dream come true! I am honored to be part of the Pack!”

Legacy and Legends Softball tabbed her as the No. 20 overall prospect in the Class of 2024 in this summer’s national rankings.

Her summer stats included a pop time of 1.7 seconds, an overhand velocity of 75 mph, an exit velocity off a tee at 70 mph and a 20-yard dash time of 3.4 seconds. Titi was also on Team Polynesia for Triple Crown Fastpitch’s International Challenge in Denver where her team won gold.

As a sophomore for Gulf Shores this past spring, Titi recorded a batting overage of .515, an on-base percentage of .556 and a slugging percentage of .984 thanks to 34 hits (4 home runs, 4 triples, 11 doubles), 39 RBIs and 23 runs.

The Dolphins finished 16-14 overall and 2-4 in Class 6A Area 2 for third place heading into the area playoffs. Gulf Shores earned a win over Spanish Fort then fell to the two teams that represented the group in the regional playoffs, Robertsdale and Baldwin County.

This season, the Dolphins dropped down to Class 5A and will battle with the B.C. Rain Red Raiders, Elberta Warriors and LeFlore Rattlers for the top spots in Area 1. Elberta claimed the area title undefeated last season.

In North Carolina, the Wolfpack recorded a 33-23 overall record in 2022 with a 7-17 mark within the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). NC State took the No. 10 seed heading into the ACC Championship bracket and fell to No. 7 Georgia Tech in the first round.
