4-star 2017 power forward Aamir Simms from Palmyra, Virginia (Blue Ridge HS) has Clemson in his top group of schools according to his Twitter account.

Sims' top schools were Clemson, Iowa State, Miami, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and VCU.

He has an impressive list of offers including Cincinnati, Clemson, Georgetown, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Hofstra, Iowa State, Notre Dame, Ole Dominion, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Providence, Richmond, VCU, Virginia Tech, and Xavier.

As a junior, he averaged 13.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, 1.8 assists per game.
In 2014, he averaged seven points, six rebounds and two assists per game.

Phenom Hoop Report Scouting Report: 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. He literally gets the job done at all angles. If he isn’t bullying opponents deep in the post, Simms uses his versatility to get open and bury mid-range jump shots. His post moves are out of this world. Whether it’s a smooth up and under, or a finessed skyhook, chances are Simms is dropping buckets.

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. After a sensational regular season and winning a state title, Simms was invited to our first annual Virginia Top 80 Camp. He was outstanding. Throughout the course of the afternoon, Simms worked hard to make to give himself a slight advantage. He was a fierce competitor with a great amount of mental toughness and determination.
