Go for the trifecta! Finasteride, minoxidil and LLLT (+/- PRP)!
Option 3 may be reasonable because you are still relatively young. PRP contains growth factors and other elements to restore injured tissue (and presumably injured follicles from DHT). It is injected or rolled into the scalp.
Hair loss for crown - wait!
The mid scalp could be addressed earlier with a conservative number of grafts.
Men with early hair loss need to plan for more hair loss - and keep in mind the possibility of advanced hair loss patterns as well as limited donor hair. It may look like you have alot of good quality donor hair, but young men should plan for well under 5000 grafts available to move. Making sure there's appropriate amount for the front is key. The crown quickly uses up massive amounts of grafts
A small (very conservative session) in the mid scalp could be done. But medical options (minoxidil, finasteride, laser and PRP) are essential to figure out if you want to use them as part of your overall plan.
