Team USA for August’s World Championships will be chosen at the USATF Championships (Eugene, July 06–09).

With 3½ weeks from the end of the NCAA to the start of the selection meet, collegians will have roughly twice as much time for recovery as they had last year.

From the tenuous vantage point of 7 weeks out, here’s our Top 10 charting for each men’s event. The listing of an athlete in a discipline doesn’t guarantee he’ll contest that event (or events).

Note that athletes who won individual golds at the ’22 WC and those who won Diamond League titles in ’22 have earned the right to WA Wild Cards for this summer and need put in only a token appearance (event doesn’t matter) at the Nationals.

The 5 American Wild Card holders: 100 — Fred Kerley; 200 — Noah Lyles; 400 — Michael Norman; 110H — Grant Holloway; SP — Ryan Crouser. Should Kerley and/or Crouser become unavailable for some reason, their WC Wild Cards would pass on to DL champs Trayvon Bromell and Joe Kovacs.

The Top 10s (the number in the right-hand column represents the athlete’s placing in last year’s U.S. Rankings; athletes with asterisks have achieved the WC qualifying standard):
