Faris will report to Eugene, Oregon and should be in uniform on Thursday.
Faris updated CUTigers.com on contract negotiations with the Padres just last week, saying, "We're talking right now. It's gotten a little closer. We keep talking, but right now, we're at a standstill."
Faris, a junior, was seeking about $100,000 in signing bonus money and was also looking for the Padres to pay for the final two semesters of his college education so that he could graduate from Clemson.
Faris is also one of three Clemson underclassmen that have been considering making the jump to the professional level.
First baseman Andy D'Alessio, who was drafted in the 10th round by the Dodgers has already decided to return to school while pitcher Sean Clark, who was not drafted but was one of the Tigers' hottest pitcher during a critical stretch in the postseason, has yet to announce a decision.
