An 11-year-old boy in Texas is heading to class this week but not in elementary school or even middle school.

He's going to college.

Carson Huey-You is a freshman at Texas Christian University and he's majoring in quantum physics. He says he likes numbers. He says they help calm him down when he's upset.

The young man, who was in high school at age 5, plans to have a doctorate by age 20.

Carson's mom is with him every day and carries his backpack full of books because Carson is too small to lift it.
