Maryland football adds another signee in what’s expected to be a relatively slow period, as three-star wide receiver Dino Tomlin sent in his Letter of Intent Wednesday morning.
The 6’0 wideout becomes the fourth official addition of the day. Maryland’s class entered Wednesday with just 10 verbal commits, and only a few signees were expected among that group, but three of those have signed and Maryland inked a new one. Tomlin is the No. 26 player in Pennsylvania in the Class of 2019 and No. 158 receiver in the country.
Tomlin, son of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike, committed to the Terps in early November, a week after DJ Durkin was fired. It was unknown whether he’d still sign early under Locksley’s leadership, but the Pittsburgh native tweeted his intentions to sign Monday. He was recruited by wide receivers coach Chris Beatty, who hasn’t officially been retained under Locksley at the moment.
Tomlin becomes the second wide receiver to sign, joining four-star receiver Isaiah Hazel, who flipped his commitment from West Virginia after Locksley was hired. Tomlin and Hazel are Maryland’s only commits at the position at the moment, after the Terps took nine receivers in the last two classes.
Maryland’s freshmen this past season showed promise on the outside, but with a new regime, there’s always a shot at early playing time. The Terps’ passing game was inconsistent in 2018, but hopefully Locksley can bring some of the success he’s enjoyed in the passing game with him from Alabama.
