BATON ROUGE, La. -- Kevin Spears said he always knew he had it in him.

"I wouldn't say I always knew I could be the best, but I always knew what I could be," said Spears, a late-bloomer wide receiver from New Orleans' Holy Cross High School who became LSU's 26th commitment of the 2013 class Saturday. "I knew I could catch footballs."
