I haven't heard one way or the other with Alex Derringer, but he was 165 in

NCAAs which is now 4 years in the past. I could see some logic and temptation to go up where the list is smaller and former world champ David Taylor is injured this year and won't get any special treatment for 2020 OTTs. Another world champ J'den Cox may have seriously outgrown 86kg since they moved the weigh-ins to the morning of - he was probably cutting too much in 2016 and 2017 for day before weighins and it really showed in 2017 so I wouldn't be surprised to see Cox up at 97kg instead of 86kg - but if I had to guess both Cox and Ringer haven't ruled out going up or down and for the meantime have 2019 to focus on.
