Florida State is moving a handful of its practices away from Tallahassee, and heading across the state to Bradenton from Aug. 12 through Aug. 16.

The school announced via a statement that practices will be held at the famed IMG Academy, where coincidentally, the Seminoles are recruiting a number of players.

Fans will be mostly kept in the dark because the NCAA prohibits the school from publicizing off-campus practices. Practices also will be closed to both the media and public, the Tallahassee Democrat reports.

The newspaper also said two IMG stars, four-star offensive guard Dontae Lucas and four-star defensive end Jaleel McRae, have committed to Willie Taggart, and that Seminoles will be practicing in front of a handful of other highly-sought recruits.

The Seminoles open practice on Monday.
