Maryland was just one of two Power 5 offers on the table for Tomlin – Pitt also offered the wideout. Tomlin is the No. 183 wide receiver recruit in the 2019 recruiting class, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. He’s also the No. 35 recruit from the state of Pennsylvania.
In addition to his talent on the football field, Tomlin is a track star as well. The talented wide receiver won the state title in the 300-meter hurdles and finished second in the 100-meter dash in 2018.
