The Maryland football program received some good news at a time when it was very scarce. This week, three-star 2019 prospect Dino Tomlin of Sunny Side High School in Pittsburgh announced that he has committed to the Terrapins. Dino is the son of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin.
Dino is the No. 35-ranked player at any position in the state of Pennsylvania.
During his senior campaign for Shady Side Academy, Tomlin has racked up 35 yards per catch and has 18 total touchdowns on receptions, interception returns, and kick returns.
Shady Side Academy is the No. 1-ranked team in WPIAL Class 2A and is set to face off against South Side Beaver in the WPIAL quarterfinals on Friday.
Tomlin announced his commitment on social media. He is the first high school player to commit to the Maryland program since it fired head coach DJ Durkin last week.
Matt Canada is currently sitting as the interim head coach in College Park.
From Football Maven:
With the addition of Tomlin, the Terrapins have 10 players committed in a class that is ranked 70th nationally and 13th in the 14-team Big Ten by 247Sports.com. The only school in the conference ranked lower than Maryland is Illinois at No. 72.
The speedy Tomlin won the 300-meter hurdles at last season’s PIAA Class 2A track and field championships.
