The Oregon native broke out with Utrecht as an 18-year-old in the 2014-15 season, becoming a regular for the club. An ankle injury hampered his progress the following season though, causing Rubin to miss six months. 

This season, Rubin made just one appearance for Utrecht's senior side, and has spent time with the Eredivisie club's reserves. 

In a club release, Silkeborg manager Peter Sorensen said that he signed Rubin after a recommendation from former U.S. national team boss Jurgen Klinsmann.

Internationally, Rubin has been capped four times for the U.S. national team since making his debut in 2014.
