The 6-foot-1 senior, who graduated and will be able to play his final season for new Vols coach Donnie Tyndall in 2014-15, told ESPN.com that he committed to Tennessee on Tuesday.
"I chose Tennessee because of the opportunity to obtain my masters degree in a counseling program," Chiles told ESPN.com.
Chiles, who averaged 15.8 points last season at IUPUI, visited Auburn and Tennessee and had scheduled a trip to Maryland. Chiles' sister played softball at Tennessee.
Tyndall took over a team that had just five scholarship players following the departure of coach Cuonzo Martin to California, but he has added five players in the past week: junior college transfers Kevin Punter and Devon Baulkman, as well as freshmen Detrick Mostella and Jabari McGhee.
Tennessee has added more immediate help with the addition of IUPUI transfer Ian Chiles.
