What makes Carter an impact player?
Carter finished second on the team in 2012 in catches (36), yards (590) and touchdowns (6). He has big play ability and can play either the slot or outside receiver. With a receiving corp that lost one of their all-time leading receivers in Josh Boyce, many have high expectations for Carter to have a breakout year in 2013.

Carter started the 2012 season with a bang, recording two 100-yard games against Kansas and Virginia. He just missed his third triple digit game against Iowa State, falling just six yards shy. However, after the Iowa State game, Carter went on to finish the season with just thirteen catches in the Frogs' last eight games; his biggest catch coming on an 80-yard touchdown grab against Oklahoma.

There's no question that Carter has the talent to have a big year, every Frog fan has seen the potential. One thing should be noted, while Casey Pachall was quarterback for the Frogs, Carter hauled in 17 catches for 308 yards, so it's easy to think If Pachall takes over as the top signal caller again Carter could see similar numbers. Gary Patterson is looking for consistency from Carter and for him to become a leader of the receivers. For TCU to have success on offense; the ball needs to be in Carter's hands and he needs to make the most out of every opportunity. Oh, it wouldn't hurt if Carter has a chance to return some punts or kickoffs this season.
