Pitt has extended a scholarship offer to 2019 Shady Side Academy wide receiver Dino Tomlin.
Tomlin tweeted out his offer on Sunday afternoon. The Panthers are his second Power Five offer, following Iowa State. Tomlin also holds offers from Army, Toledo and about 10 FCS schools, including Duquesne and Robert Morris locally.
247 Sports rates Tomlin as the 17th-best player in the state, the No. 116 wide receiver in the country, and the No, 951 player overall. The 6-foot, 165-pound athlete attended Pitt’s camp this weekend, where he worked out at receiver before receiving his offer from the Pitt coaching staff.
Tomlin, who is the son of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, is rated as a three-star prospect by 247 Sports and is a state-champion track athlete in the 300 meters in addition to his football talents.
Mike Tomlin was also a wide receiver in college. He was a four-year letterman and a three-year starter at William & Mary from 1990 to 94 and finished with 2,054 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.
The Panthers also have extended a scholarship offer to North Allegheny cornerback Joey Porter, Jr., the son of Steelers outside linebackers coach Joey Porter. Tomlin is the seventh WPIAL player to earn an offer from Pitt in the Class of 2019. He follows Porter, Andrew Kristofic and Michael Katic from Pine-Richland, Jayvon Thrift from Norwin and M.J. Devonshire from Aliquippa.
