Carson Huey-You, 11, is a new undergrad college student at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas.

He's not just going to his regular school and taking a few college classes on the side, Huey-You is enrolled and taking a full load of college courses.

His goal is to become a quantum physicist and he is the youngest student the university has ever had.

“I’m taking calculus, physics, history and religion. Those are my four classes. It’s fun because it’s basically just like high school, but in a big campus…with a lot more people," Huey-You told CBS Dallas-Fort Worth.

Huey-You scored a 1770 on his SAT, speaks Mandarin Chinese and plays the piano. He could read at the age of one and was doing pre-algebra by 5 years old. 

“He’s definitely very talented and also he’s very serious about his work and he really enjoys it.  And that’s the best that a professor can hope for his students, right?” TCU math professor Qiao Zhang told CBS Dallas-Fort Worth.

If all goes as planned, Huey-You will have a college diploma before he gets his driver’s license.
