High school career
A native of Orange Park, Florida, Silberman attended Fleming Island High School, where he played offensive tackle and also saw limited action at defensive end. As a junior, Silberman earned All-Area and All-Clay County honors and was named to the 4A All-State Second-Team. The Golden Eagles finished 8–2 on the season, yet missed the playoffs because of lopsided district losses to Orange Park and Gainesville Buchholz late in the season. In his senior year, Silberman helped to lead Fleming Island to a 10–2 season record. The Golden Eagles advanced to the FHSAA Class 5A Regional finals, where they lost to Lakeland High School. Silberman was named Second Team USA Today High School All-American after the season, and also participated in the 2010 Under Armour All-American Game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
Regarded as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Silberman was ranked as the No. 10 offensive tackle prospect of the class of 2010, which was highlighted by Seantrel Henderson. He chose Florida over offers from Auburn, Louisiana State, and Southern California.
After redshirting his initial year at Florida, Silberman saw limited action during his redshirt freshman season, appearing on the Gators' offensive line in only three non-conference games. In his sophomore year, Silberman played in eight games while starting three. As a junior, he started four games of out of a total of eight he appeared in.
Having graduated from Florida in December 2013 with a bachelor's degree in Family, Youth and Community Science, Silberman decided to use his final year of eligibility at another institution. He was set to transfer to Louisville, but reversed his decision after head coach Charlie Strong left for Texas. Instead, he and quarterback Tyler Murphy decided to enroll at Boston College. Silberman started all 13 games at right tackle for the Eagles, competing in 896 plays (98.1 percent of the team's offensive snaps), as dual-threat quarterback Murphy broke the ACC single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback (1,184). After the season, Silberman earned All-ACC third-team honors voted by the league’s head coaches.
