Freshman phenom Quincy Wilson continues to impress on the track this outdoor season.

In an eye-catching effort against international competition at the PUMA East Coast Showcase on May 6, Wilson stormed to a 46.11 outdoor 400m personal best and one of the top quarter-mile times in the country.

Wilson also came back to grab fifth place in the 200m in yet another PR effort of 21.37 (0.0).

The New Balance Nationals indoor 400m champion from Bullis School (MD) now ranks at US No. 3 all-time among the freshman class behind that premiere win and earns him the nod as the latest National Boys Performer Of The Week.

Wilson earned 51-percent of all votes to win the weekly performer award.

This week's poll features some of the top finishers from a few of the nation's most competitive state championships, including athletes who posted nation-leading marks and moved up event all-time rankings lists.
