Try internally rotating your arms (turn the points of the elbows out to the sides) right from the start and keeping them oriented that way - that will prevent you from pulling the elbows back and will set you up to pull high and out before the turnover (which you will have to do actively). You may still bend a little early to get the bar higher toward your hips, but I wouldn't worry about that.
