Default Drills to emphasize OPENING the hips

I've been working with my athletes through the three-position C&J and snatch. We've used lots of footwork drills, snatch balance, jerk boxes etc.

I've got one athlete - and he's a GOOD athlete - who cannot carry over the full hip extension from these drills to his full power C&J or snatch. He's on the money from the mid- and high-hang positions, but he's so concerned with getting under the bar that he shorts his hip extension almost every time he pulls from the floor.

Can you recommend anything that may help correct this, or is it just going to take repetition? I have been toying with high, near max-effort box jumps that require the hips to fully open and then snap closed to get the feet high enough to land the jump. Thoughts on that?

Thanks,
Tom
