Not really, they more resemble grass spiders or fishing spiders.
The smaller size, maybe Pàrdosa genus wolf spider.
You can look up spiderling tarantulas and compare images..

Well, we can say yes because of a lot of variables in both types of spiders. There is a black variety of both kinds. Tarantula in general is larger and fuzzier than a Wolf spider. But they both go out and hunt their food.

The resemblance is weak. Wolf spiders have 2 large eyes facing forward, tarantulas do not. Wolf spiders have pinching fangs, tarantula fangs are hinged more like a snake's.
Wolf spiders are found throughout the US, tarantulas are found only west of the Mississippi and Louisiana.

Without a picture, no one is going to make an identification.
