Not too bad. Work on a smoother movement through the middle - you're bordering on a pause at mid-thigh. There should be a noticeable acceleration there, but no slowing down previously.

More important is that you're bringing in your arms early. Really focus on towing the bar with the arms, as Tim Swords puts it--stretch yourself away from the bar as you extend. Once you reach that full extension, your arms should be loaded and ready to snap you under the bar.

Finally work on that overhead position - turn the bar over and drive up aggressively immediately.
