Tomlin transferred to Manhattan in 2022 following two years at the junior college level at Chipola College. As a junior last season, Tomlin ranked third on the Wildcats in scoring, second in rebounding and led the team in blocks and dunks.
As a unique pro prospect with his raw talent and athleticism, Tomlin utilized the new college basketball rule in which players can declare for the draft and return to school if they pull their name from the draft pool ahead of selection. Doing so permits college athletes to speak to NBA scouts and learn what skills they should improve upon for the next level.
Tomlin will remain a part of the 2023-24 K-State roster that has three scholarship openings to fill this offseason.
