Israel native and Robert Morris striker Gal Ben Dayan has officially transferred to UAB to continue his college soccer career.

In his time at Robert Morris, Ben Dayan put up three goals, giving himself a total of six points on the year. Two of his goals came as game-winners and he also had a goal on a penalty kick.

He was second on the roster in points behind Bryan Akongo as the team made it to the postseason for the first time since joining the Horizon League.

Ben Dayan played in 15 of the possible 16 games, getting the start in 14 of those games. He also played a total of 1,006 minutes for the club as well.

Ben Dayan is heading to a UAB club that went 2-12-1 this past season. Ben Dayan is going to get a good look for the Blazers and should be a starter when he gets there.
