Section 7: Diving into the top dogs, part III

GLENDALE, AZ - The depth of talent at the Section 7 camp this season was unreal. We can unpack it for a week and still never cover it all. That said, we continue to look at the top overall performers from the action. 

RELATED: Part I | Part II 

Cameron Holmes, Millennium (AZ): Arizona’s class of 2026 is shaping up to be a special one. The star power at the top is undeniable and each of the players within the top 10 are stringing together memorable showings thus far in spring and summer. Holmes is right there with the best of them. The 6-foot-6 wing is showing his versatility off quite well and did so at Section 7. He was an easy choice for a top overall performer on this grand stage. 

Holmes, an easy inclusion in our upcoming top 25 rankings for the national class of 2026, is not just getting better by the event. He’s getting scarier for opposing teams and players by the event. His confidence is soaring and his recruitment matches. Holmes is a must-get for the West Coast and a national recruitment should start to really materialize in the coming months. 

His game is best suited for speed and his value can be felt inside and out. That goes for both sides of the ball. Holmes has the tools, man. This will be a fun one to chart. 


Sammie Yeanay, AZ Compass (AZ): Yeanay debuted in an AZ Compass uniform on the weekend and didn’t disappoint. The 6’8” forward displayed his impressive, diverse skill set at his size. Yeanay shot the ball very well, hitting threes and mid-range shots at a consistent rate and showcased his polished post game that he used to score on other ranked players in the non-NFHS side of Section 7. He arguably brought the most entertaining presence of the weekend as talked quite a bit on the floor and backed it up continuously. Yeanay did it all and finished the weekend with a baseline drive leading to a monster poster dunk.

He is such a unique player because of how much he can do for his size. He can handle the ball well and uses that to free himself from defenders that are his size and taller but are not as quick, he can knock down threes, he punishes defenders at the hoop, and he knows exactly where to be to grab rebounds on each end. He’s ranked top-70 across different platforms, but if he plays even near how he did this weekend, he should fly up in the rankings. - Griffin Greenberg 


Julius Price, St. Joseph (CA): The class of 2026 showed out at Section 7 and Price was right there in the thick of it. His ball handing was elite. That led to great situations for midrange pull-ups, which he thrived in. Price was spraying in three-pointers and jumpers with ease. He’s been listed as a shooting guard, and Price would be great at that position in college, but I think I’d be comfortable with him as a combo guard and even a full-time point guard in the right situation. 

While his athleticism isn’t quite to this level, Price reminded me of KJ Simpson of Colorado fame. Heck, there aren’t a lot of guards with that kind of athleticism. But Price’s game is versatile and crafty out of the backcourt.

Price has the chops and bravery to be a stick-his-nose-in-there kind of defender. Unafraid of the opposing player, he could develop into the most confident guards on a college roster. Price will be a top 60 player in our updated class of 2026 rankings. - Justin Young 


Trevor Hennig, Mount Si (WA): I noted him as a player from the class of 2024 who should trend upward after the Section 7 stage. I’m glad I did. Henning was very good in Glendale. His toughness and competitiveness shine through his team’s actions. Hennig can drive and kick but he can score in traffic and through contact. Don’t leave him open and he will bury a jumper. 

Hennig is a player that structured basketball minds like. He knows the game and his competitive play sews it all together. 

There were a number of schools, including several from the Pac-12, that made sure they logged some games watching him. That time spent was justified. He played like a guy worthy of a scholarship of that level. In perfect Mount Si fashion, Hennig showed that his foundation of fundamentals should shine through at the collegiate level.
