After his freshman year, he transferred to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) on a baseball scholarship in 2015. That same year, he was drafted by the San Diego Padres team in the 38th round of the 2015 draft. This caused him to become the first Israeli to ever be selected in the MLB draft.
