Default Squat Troubles

Have been working hard to get into a more vertical squat. Have been doing tons of mobility work including stretching and rolling out hips, shoulder mobility, and ankle stretching. When I start to get down in an overhead squat, at some point, I get stuck and my chest lowers. It seems I can't get my hips close enough to my heels.

Here is a video of me overhead squatting:

What do you guys think? This has been effecting my Snatch and Clean as well, since my ass is so far back and the weight is supported mostly by my shoulders and arms.

Any information that you can give would be most appreciated!

Thanks
