CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson first baseman Ben Paulsen has agreed to terms with the Colorado Rockies, giving up his senior season in college.

The National League team announced the agreement this week. The Rockies selected Paulsen in the third round of last month's Major League Baseball draft.

Paulsen led Clemson with a .367 average, 95 hits, 18 doubles, 13 home runs and 61 RBIs. He was a three-year starter with the Tigers and leaves school with 31 career homers.

Paulsen is the son of Clemson assistant Tom Riginios and helped the team return to the NCAA tournament and advance to the Super Regional, where the Tigers lost to Arizona State.
