This is very cool! Not only did he start college at 13; he graduated in 3 years with a 4.0 GPA, summa cum laude. He majored in Physics and minored in Mathematics. He won the Wichita Falls Symphony League Award for Musical Excellence (piano) while he was earning his BS in Physics at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, TX.
He has chosen to do his doctorate in Physics at The University of Texas at Dallas in Richardson,TX. Other schools he had considered were Cornell University (Ithaca, NY), Rice University (Houston, TX) and MIT (Cambridge, MA).
I don't know if he's Rodney or perhaps Radek or maybe an alternate John. But he's certainly brilliant!
