Totally NFRC: Does anyone know anyone whose kid went to "Duke University Talent Search...

The son of a work colleague has been invited to submit SAT scores to see if he can be accepted into this program. The kid is in 8th grade and scores in the 95 percentile on most tests. However, he's never even taken the PSAT, let alone the SATs.
Mom is proud of his accomplishments. But since he would be so young compared with the other highschool-aged students taking the SATs, she was a bit hesitant about putting him in that situation, not knowing if it would be a good thing or a bad thing for him.
Only four students from his school received this letter asking if they wanted to participate in the Duke program (assuming they score high enough SAT scores).
I don't know anyone who's been through it or who took SATs that early in life.
