Michigan football slot receiver Kelvin Grady returns to basketball team
The junior, who left the Wolverines’ after last season and joined the Michigan football team, initially broached his return to basketball last week and became the school’s latest two-sport player Sunday.
The first day back went well.
“He looked fine. Basketball is a flow sport and there isn’t the huddles in between, but I think that they’ve kept him in very good shape with football and there were some flashes yesterday, very good ones,” Beilein said. “And then there were some times where he was grabbing his knees a little bit, but overall I thought for the limited amount we did yesterday he did well learning the scout team and learning some of the actions he needs to do to imitate what Michigan State does.”
Beilein said Saturday he and Grady will decide at the end of the season if he’ll return permanently. If it is permanent and he doesn’t play this year, he’d have two years of eligibility remaining.
Grady will still play football, and Beilein said his role as a slot receiver on the Michigan football team will be Grady’s primary focus.
