I'm assuming you're talking about the power variants.
It's better to get in the habit of dropping under than going wide. Disregarding the fact that you won't be able to progress to the squat variants without breaking the habit, going wide also puts you at risk for tearing or pulling something if you pull something heavy and, for some reason or another, are forced all the way down with it.
There's really no up side to catching wide. Physically, it's equally easy to squat down a bit more as it is to send the legs outwards. You just need the confidence to do it.
