ESPYS 2022 will take place on July 20. One of the categories for the awards is Best College Athlete, Male Sports.
The four nominees for the award are Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, Georgetown midfielder Dante Polvara, Gonzaga center Chet Holmgren and Maryland lacrosse star Logan Wisnauskas.

Polvara was named Big East Midfielder of the Year. In 22 games for the Hoyas, he registered a team-high seven goals along with six assists.
Holmgren was sensational in his first and only season at Gonzaga. The West Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year was recently drafted second overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Wisnauskas, meanwhile, was selected first overall in the 2022 Premier Lacrosse League Draft. It was a fitting accomplishment for the former Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year.
