As one gets older in life, one will start to recognize the parents of players currently on the roster for Florida football.

And the Gators added a PWO on Tuesday who Florida fans and/or WWE fans will recognize the family lineage in a heartbeat.

Florida Football: Titus Worldwide

Thaddeus Bullard was a defensive lineman for the Gators during the Steve Spurrier Era and left Gainesville with 56 tackles and redshirted during the 1996 national title year.

Bullard went on to find success in the wrestling business and was an active wrestler with WWE from 2012 through 2020 under the name Titus O'Neil and has continued on in the industry as an ambassador and he continues working charitable efforts in the Tampa area.

His youngest son Titus announced on Tuesday that he will be joining the Gators as a PWO.

It is easy to write off Titus Bullard as just another PWO that happens to be of a notable family lineage. Listed as a 6'2" and 210 pound defensive end, Bullard is going to need add at minimum 40 pounds to be line size wise with the rest of Florida's EDGE guys.

But watching his film, Bullard has a senior season highlight package that we would dare say matches that of some four-star guys out there.

He was part of the Berkeley Prep squad that upset Miami Norland in the 2M state finals and in that game, he had two sacks, one of which was a strip sack. He gets past offensive tackles with ease, holds the edge well when needed, and does well to disrupt passing lanes when he can't get to the QB.

Even if Bullard doesn't make it onto the field, having guys in the program who have grown up bleeding orange and blue are important to have, especially in the era of NIL.
