Dino Tomlin, the son of longtime Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, has announced his transfer decision. On Wednesday, the Boston College football program announced the enrollment of the former Maryland wide receiver.

Tomlin entered the NCAA transfer portal in January after reeling in just two receptions for 12 yards in his redshirt sophomore season with the Terps. In addition to his role as a reserve wideout, he was also frequently active on the special teams unit.

Coming out of Shady Side Academy in Pittsburgh, Tomlin joined the Maryland program as a three-star recruit in 2019, per 247 Sports. Through three seasons in College Park, he saw time in just four contests.

Joining the Eagles this coming season, Tomlin will have a shot at an increased role at the wide receiver position. After the 2021 season, three Boston College wideouts -- Jehlani Galloway, C.J. Lewis and Kobay White -- all announced their intent to transfer.

Boston College finished the 2021 season with a 6-6 record.
