Does early puberty have anything to do with when your wisdom teeth come in?

In brief: Possibly

The sooner someone matures, the sooner the teeth come in.

In brief: No

But you can have early dentition and that can be associated with early development.

In brief: Just a little bit

Going into puberty, a child has changes in several hormones which encourage growth and maturation of the bones and the rest of the body.
Maturation of the upper and lower jaw, along with the teeth, means that the remaining teeth should erupt a bit sooner. While kids who enter puberty earlier may be a little more likely to have their regular teeth sooner, many people never erupt their wisdom teeth.
