LSU basketball coach Johnny Jones awarded junior guard Henry Shortess with a scholarship in front of his team this week, in a moment that was posted to the team’s social media channel.

“We’re excited about the efforts and stuff that Henry’s been putting forward and he’s always thrived and did everything that he possibly could to be the best that he could be,” Jones said. “… He’s never looked and I don’t think you guys have ever looked at him as a walk-on. And today I’m glad that you won’t have an opportunity to anymore — we’re going to put Henry on scholarship.”
