4-star 2017 power forward Aamir Simms from Palmyra, Virginia (Blue Ridge HS) has committed to Clemson according to multiple reports.

The Top 100 player chose Clemson over his finalists Iowa State, Miami, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and VCU.

Sims is a consensus 4-star recruit by all the major recruiting services. 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. Clemson offered back in August 2015.

He is the second Blue Ridge high school player to choose Clemson in the last two years with guard Scott Spencer's commitment last year. Both players will be reunited again and get the opportunity play on the same team in college.

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

Brownell and Co. have done a great job for their 2017 recruiting class as it is considered a Top 20 class nationally.

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.
