Is this a good example for how the timing of the scoop should look?

I was originally taught at my usaw certs (which I wouldn't suggest to anyone who reads this), that you should immediately "explode" as the bar passes the knees. Clearly in this video, he waits a little bit longer, until mid-thigh, gets his torso slightly more upright, and then powerfully extends. And hey, it looks like a pretty good snatch!
