Michigan State basketball's Draymond Green gets a few reps during football scrimmage

EAST LANSING -- The alley-oop didn't work so well on the football field.
Michigan State junior Draymond Green traded basketball shoes for cleats on Saturday. He played wide receiver/tight end for a couple of plays for the White squad in the third quarter of Michigan State's spring football game at Spartan Stadium.
Green was whistled for a false start on his first play from scrimmage in the third quarter, putting the White in a first-and-15 situation at the White 36.
Andrew Maxwell overthrew the 6-foot-7 Green on the next play but got the benefit of a 10-yard holding penalty called against cornerback Johnny Adams, who was covering Green.
Green wasn't available to reporters afterward, but he sent out a tweet @Money23Green: "Lol that was classic I'm going to stick to Basketball but it was definitely fun thanks to Coach D and his staff for the opportunity"
Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio joked that Green's future as a football player was "limited."
Dantonio said Green came to him and asked to play, and he agreed if Green would come to a practice to prepare, which he did last week.
"He just didn't show up and put the pads on," Dantonio said. "He got fitted. We had to get him cleared.
"He came out and went through the whole practice Thursday (in) shorts. Caught some balls. ... It was great to see him out there, and then we got him in a couple plays. He just asked that he not be tackled."
