Gophers guard Kendal Shell joined Tubby Smith's basketball program in 2011 without a scholarship. 

The walk-on, now a junior, will earn a scholarship this spring under new head coach Richard Pitino, according to a message posted on Pitino's Twitter account.


The team confirmed the account is Pitino's, although it is unverified. A team spokesman also confirmed that Shell will receive a basketball scholarship this spring.
