2026 Standouts From TCU Elite Camp

Spent time at the third annual TCU Elite Camp which consists of some of the best players the state has to offer from the 2025-2027 class. The first edition of my recap talks about the 2026 standouts. Let's dive in!

2026 Class Really Stood Out

We didn’t see many of the high profile names in the 2025 class in this camp but for 2026, an adequate amount of the higher end talent was there. Seven Spurlock is a 6’5-6’6 lead guard that plays with a lot of poise. Plus passer, uses strength to get to spots and has improved as a shooter. Caught the eye of the staff with his play this weekend. Contending as the top player in that class state-wise.

Dakari Spear also is in that conversation and he’s very talented. A combo guard with a crafty handle. Changes speeds well, a solid shooter with clean pull-up game. High upside with the playmaking, too. Game comes easy to Spear. 

Currently the top prospect statewide, Trent Perry made eye-popping plays. Freakish athlete that sports a near 7-foot wingspan at 6-foot-4. Gets downhill, finishes vs. size and has a lot of upside of becoming a defensive play-maker. I like seeing Perry on the ball and looking to take more outside shots. Can tell he’s been working on it and albeit not being a dependable shooter, there has been progress with his shooting. 

Can’t forget about Alex Barther either as he joins the convo. A 6-foot-6 guard that has made strides in his game. Has good positional size, a scorer with good touch on his pull-up jumpers and can switch and be solid on the defensive end. Handle and decision making has vastly improved over the past year. Will be very interesting to see where he is as a senior. 

2026 Notables

Trae Nunn, 6’4 Wing - Waxahachie: Body looks good and has shed some weight. A versatile shooter that can connect on the move, off the catch and off the bounce when attacking closeouts. Really like the growth and commitment he’s made to development. 

Ethan Sheats, 6’8 PF - Denton: A 4-man with good size and could develop into a big wing down the road. Capable shooter from deep, driver to the rim and played with a good motor, especially on the glass. High upside guy that has ways to go but making progress. 

Davion Adkins, 6’8 PF - Oak Cliff Faith Family: Adkins was solid. I’ve seen him play better but it was a guard heavy camp, so touches inside didn’t come at the volume I honestly would’ve preferred. Regardless, a lefty forward that has made headway in expanding his game. Athletic, protects the rim well as a help-side shot blocker and offensively a strong put-back candidate, lob threat and catch-n-shoot guy from 15 feet out. 

Daniel Ogoemeka, 6’11 C - WT White: Didn’t have his best day, either, but being 6-foot-11 with long arms stands out. He blocked multiple shots each game, finishes above the rim and has promising touch around the rim. 

Carter Chism, 6’1 PG - Mt. Pleasant: Crafty scoring guard that has good touch on floaters and runners. His brother Payton, that’s at Collin County CC, is more of a pure point that’s a table-setter/manager that can really defend, but Carter looks more to score the ball, equipped with adequate mid-range pull-up, and has a lot of creativity with the handle. Should consume a larger role this season at Mt. Pleasant and lead them to the playoffs. 

Silas Rodriguez, 6’3 SG - Denton Guyer: A dependable shot-maker from deep, Silas played within his strengths and looked good doing it. Feel for the game, sufficient positional size and deep range shooting was displayed. 

Xavier Green, 5’9 PG - The Colony: Dakari Spear backcourt mate at The Colony strung together three solid games. Quick guard that got paint touches. He may not have ideal height but he’s shifty, puts pressure on the defense and can score it in bunches.
