I see a pretty good PC for the most part. Your pull seems fine but when you receive the bar you split your legs apart into a pretty wide stance. I'd tighten that receiving stance up into a natural squatting position and drop under the bar into a deeper 1/4 squat if you must to get under the weight. Obviously you don't want to get under the weight too deep or you're just squat cleaning.

That's my 2 cents. Hopefully better coaches will come along and critique.

Hey Justin it looks like your shooting your hips (1st pull) and then dragging it with arms pretty good (2nd pull), almost like a deadlift + upright row combo, rather than delivering the bar to the scoop & power position (1st pull) then exploding(2nd pull). Have you tried sitting back on the setup, where knees pass the elbows, and the weight is more distributed on your legs and hips rather than back? The lift off will be much cleaner, this with a hips & shoulders equally rising into the scoop should do the job.
