I have checked through all the mefarshim I could find and haven't seen any one of them comment that the meraglim saw prophetically that they wouldn't be the leaders in Eretz Yisroel. The closest I found was the peirush of Rav Moshe Zakut on the Zohar which explains the spiritual thought process of the meraglim but it still indicates that they themselves ...

Or perhaps, this is the simple reading of the Zohar. I believe that this is the closest to the mark. We can quibble over whether it actually is the simplest and most straight-forward explanation of the Zohar, but it does appear to be his understanding of the text. This assumption, that the Zohar is to be so read is shared by others. For example, Rav Yaakov ...

So I looked through a number of mefarshim (commentaries) and there doesn't appear to be any reference to any prophecy. As you say, many mention this Zohar, but I think it would be fair to say that the Be'er Yosef's words are more his own personal presentation of the facts.

And in fact, if the commentary of the Ohr HaChaim is considered, ...

Similar to the Ibn Ezra's view brought by @JoelK, Rabbi Alexander Hool wrote in an article titled "Who Was The Pharaoh of Yetzias Mitzrayim?", published in Ami's Double Pesach Issue, and which I surmise is a condensed version of his book "Pharaoh: Biblical History, Egypt and the Missing Millennium": "When Yaakov came back from ...

It's noted in tora.us.fm that the verse in Shmuel is intended to look like the song-verses in Yehoshua because it's a continuation of what happened in the time of Yehoshua: "הפסוק דומה מאד לפסוקים ביהושע יב 9 - 24, שבהם מפורטים המלכים שהיכה יהושע. ואכן הפסוק הזה הוא המשך ישיר של אותו הפרק, כי יהושע לא הצליח להכות את 5 ערי הפלשתים, ורק בימי השופטים ...
