Precocious puberty means having the signs of puberty earlier than usual. In boys, this can start before the age of 9. Are you sure your son is going through early puberty? Is he showing signs of puberty (public and underarm hair, body odor, increased growth rate)?
The reason this process begins early in some children depends on he type of precocious puberty they have. He can either have central precious puberty or peripheral precocious puberty.
