4-Star SF Aamir Simms Commits To Clemson Basketball

Aamir Simms, a four-star small forward ranked No. 119 in the class of 2017, has committed to play for Clemson basketball.

Simms, who 247Sports ranks No. 24 among all players at his position, made the decision moments ago.

Simms chose Clemson over Iowa State, Miami, Notre Dame, Pitt, and VCU, which were all finalists in the top six he released back on August 17. In a 2015 scouting report, Phenom Hoop Report raved about Simms' athleticism.

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.

With his commitment, Clemson now has three members of the 2017 class. Simms joins fellow four-star forward Malik William, and three-star shooting guard A.J. Oliver.

We're early in the cycle, but Clemson's class currently ranks No. 1 in the ACC and No. 13 in the nation, per 247Sports.
