The 18-year-old clocked a wind-legal 19.49s (1.4m/s) in just his first 200m outing of the 2022 season.
Joseph Fahnbulleh of Florida was second in 19.92, and Dorian Camel of LSU, finished third in 20.00.
With his new mark, Erriyon Knighton is now the fourth-fastest of all time. Jamaicans Usain Bolt, 19.19 and Yohan Blake, 19.26, are the world’s all-time leaders.
American Michael Johnson, who held the world record of 19.32 before Bolt lowered the mark at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, is third on the list.
