BALTIMORE, Md. — Ty Hobson-Powell made history Sunday when he walked across the stage as the youngest person to graduate from The University Of Baltimore, completing four years of college in two years.

The Baltimore Sun reports:

Hobson-Powell gave up a fledgling basketball career when he began college three years ago, commuted more than an hour each way from his home in Northwest Washington after transferring last fall from Howard University and once completed 27 credits in a single semester while shuttling between classes at Howard, Montgomery College and the Internet.

Powell will be going to law school in the fall, and is considering medical school after that!

Check out an interview below with Powell while he was still a student at Howard.
