Oak Park, Calif., safety/linebacker Logan Ketchum (6-3, 195, 4.65) has had a busy summer taking in many unofficial visits.
"I just took an unofficial visit to San Diego State on Monday (August 7th)," Ketchum said. "They have improved a lot since I saw them in the spring.
"Coach Chuck Long is really turning the program around. The team's intensity throughout practice was higher and they were more physical. I was impressed by San Diego State's improvement."

""UCLA is also recruiting me hard," Ketchum said. "I took an unofficial visit there and they have invited me to all their practices. I just haven't been able to get there yet.
"My visit to UCLA was great, I mean its UCLA," Ketchum said. "I've been down there a lot.
"Coach Karl Dorrell is doing a great job getting the program back to where it should be and it looks like they are going to have another winning season.
"My brother (Gavin Ketchum) goes to UCLA and that's an added plus. He's been through the system and he likes it a lot.
"UCLA was able to get Gavin into the program really fast and got him up to speed and even started some games last year. He really likes the system very much and I'm sure I would too."
"I have also visited Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Colorado," Ketchum said. "Nevada has all new facilities and Coach Chris Ault is a great coach. Nevada won the WAC and has been winning the last couple of years."
"With Washington I like where the campus is located and I think Coach Tyrone Willingham is good coach," Ketchum said. "Oregon has been a respectable program and they should win again this season."
"Regarding Colorado, Boulder is really a nice city and I think the coaching staff is going to turn it around," Ketchum said. "Coach Dan Hawkins did a great job at Boise State and I think he's going to the same thing for Colorado.
"Coach Greg Brown, the defensive back coach is a great coach and he's a respected coach in the pros. He wanted to come back to college and coach with Coach Hawk. It would be a pleasure to be coach by someone like Coach Brown."
Ketchum was an all-league performer after accounting for 65 tackles, five interceptions, four batted down passes and two fumble recoveries.
