Four-star SF Aamir Simms commits to Clemson


Four-star small forward Aamir Simms committed to the Clemson basketball program Thursday, choosing the Tigers over the likes of Iowa State, Miami, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and VCU.

The announcement was shared on social media:

According to 247Sports, Aamir Simms is the 24th-ranked small forward in the nation.

The senior at Blue Ridge School, a private, all-boys boarding school, makes for the third recruit Clemson has picked up in the class of 2017.

The two others are Malik William, another 4-star forward, and A.J. Oliver, a 3-star shooting guard.

Kyle Ellis, a scout for Phenom Hoops, wrote the following in a report on Simms when Ellis saw him in mid-2015:

“Simms is a very athletic player with an absurd amount of potential. He has great size, beautiful touch, and phenomenal footwork for a player his age. On offense, the 6’8” rising junior is electric… On defense, Simms is an opponent’s nightmare. His lengthy body and extraordinarily high basketball IQ cause endless problems for opposing offenses. He rebounds well, hustles hard, and makes his presence known every time he steps foot on the floor. He’s the type of player that no one wants to match up with.”

High praise for the 6-foot-8-inch, 200-pound product of Dyke, Virginia.

Clemson starts its season at home vs. Georgia Nov. 11.
