TCC Titan pitcher's Brandon Choate and Tim Dean have each signed National Letters of Intent during the early signing period. Choate has signed to play at the University of Washington and Dean with the University of Incarnate Word.

"We are very excited for Brandon and Tim," states Titan Head Coach Ryan Mummert. "The opportunity to join Division 1 programs is something both these guys have worked so hard for. We couldn't be happier for them and their families"

Choate, a Sophomore, pitched out of the bullpen last year and was used in a closer role. He threw 11 Innings, while striking out 12 with a save and accumulated a 6.54 ERA. "Brandon has made a significant jump this Fall and has the makings of a dominant NWAACC pitcher. With a plus slider and upper 80's to low 90's fastball, Brandon has great opportunity to make an impact next year for Washington in the Pac 12," Mummert said.

Dean, also a Sophomore and a returning starter, earned 1st Team All-Conference recognition last year as a Freshman. He posted a 8-0 record with a 1.03 ERA, 28 strikeouts, 17 walks, 38 hits in 52 Innings. Incarnate Word, currently a Division II school in Texas, will play the 2013 season as its last in Division II before making the transition to Division I and the Southland Conference effective July 1, 2013. "Tim was a huge piece of our pitching staff last year and if he can come even half as close as his stats last year, we will be really excited. Incarnate Word is getting an tremendous player," says Mummert.

The Titans have had 9 players sign with D1 schools in the last 3 years, which equals the total amount that had moved on to D1's the previous 7 year combined.
