MONTREAL - The sky is the limit for Duron Carter, a receiving threat the Argos must take into account when the Als play host to Toronto Sunday afternoon.

There’s speed, size, a pedigree and plenty of potential embodied in Carter, who hauled in four passes for 76 yards in Montreal’s win over the Argos earlier in the week.

“He’s come a long way since training camp,’’ said Als GM and interim head coach Jim Popp of Carter. “And he’s going to get better. He’s a difference-maker.

“If he stays grounded, listens to veteran players, listens to his coaches and just let his natural athletic ability come out, he can be a high-level, outstanding football player.

“He’s one of the most talented guys we’ve had.”

What’s missing with Carter is experience.

He played during his freshman year at Ohio State, where his hall-of-fame dad, Cris, once lined up at receiver, but then bounced around at the NCAA level.
