"I'm really excited," Olah said to PurpleWildcats.com. "I think and I know NU is the best place for me to be in. Academically and basketball-wise."
However, Olah faced an issue when National Signing Day came in November. His parents, based in Romania, were unable to return the document after reviewing what it entailed.
"It was frustrating, but I couldn't do anything," Olah said. "I got the letter of intent too late and my parents were not comfortable to sign wthout looking more carefully over the letter. You know, like any other parent, they wanted to make sure that everything it's alright and that we are making the right choice."
Olah has possession of the completed letter, and will fax it to Northwestern coaches on Tuesday, officially making him a Wildcat.
"I love the coaching staff, the players are just amazing," Olah said. "I can see myself improving and one day going to play professional basketball -- either NBA or Europe."
