Foot Position After the Second Pull

Powerlifter here trying to learn the olympic lifts. One problem I’m running into is that after jumping in the second pull in the clean (pulling from the hips to a rack position on the shoulders), I find that I tend to move my feet out in a helter-skelter pattern rather than a nice symmetrical position for a deep front squat. For instance, I tend to want to move my right foot out a good 3 inches in front of my left foot. Are there any drills for learning proper foot position when landing during the catch from the second pull?
Thanks!

Go on Thibarmy and watch his series of videos about the o-lift, specifically the “catch drill”. Do it everyday
