Three-star wide receiver Dino Tomlin verbally committed to Maryland football’s Class of 2019 Wednesday night, becoming the first commit for the Terps in two months.
Tomlin is the 35th-best player from Pennsylvania and No. 183 wide receiver in the class of 2019, according to the 247Sports Composite. He currently attends Shady Side Academy in Pittsburgh, and is the son of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. He’s the second receiver commit in the class, joining three-star Florida wideout Ahmarean Brown.
Maryland has brought in nine wide receivers in its last two receiving classes, although early results have been mixed. The Terps’ passing game has floundered this year due in part to an inexperienced receiving corps, so Tomlin could see the field if he’s a difference maker. All four of the Terps’ true freshman wide receivers have seen playing time this year, beating out a group of redshirt freshmen who were brought in the year before.
Maryland is back up to 10 commits in the Class of 2019, which is the same number it had before ESPN’s report on the program’s “toxic” culture. The Terps’ class is No. 70 in the country and No. 13 in the Big Ten, according to the 247Sports Composite.
