I would knit an oversized sweater, machine washable. Or, a hat/scarf/mitten set.

Ribbed hats are a great way to make sure that the hat will fit without measuring the person, because they are so stretchy!

You can just make it to the standard male head size or thereabouts and it should stretch to fit the person's head.

Knitwit88 posted a link for the knitty satchel. That was going to be my suggestion too. I think that would be a great laptop case if he has one.

I know you haven't mentioned colors, but I think it would be cool if you knit his scarf or hat or whatever you end up knitting in his school colors.
