FORT WORTH, Texas - A 17-year-old is now believed to be the youngest student to ever receive a master’s degree from TCU.

Carson Huey-You walked during Saturday afternoon’s ceremony, where he accepted his master’s degree in physics after receiving his undergraduate degree at 14.

Something like this certainly seems to be one-of-a-kind, but he also has a younger family member, who is now following in his footsteps.

Carson’s purple cap and gown blends in with the rest of his graduating class at TCU, but he stands out because of his young age.

“Outside of just school and academia, I’m really just a normal 17-year-old kid. I like playing video games, I have a dog, I have my brother at home, so, we have fun,” he said.

Carson’s brother, Cannan, is 14, and an electrical engineering major at TCU.

“I get the, ‘How old are you?’ sometimes,” Cannan added.
