OH Squat Use

I am working on incorporating OH squatting in my workouts. I am currently using just the bar to work on form and flexibility but plan on using work sets in the near future. I basically use a westside type template with a few minor variations (still use ME and DE days). My question is where do you put OH squats in your workout. I would think that they would not be used as a ME exercise. Should I use them as my second exercise on ME or DE day? Thanks in advance,

On either day I would use OH squats as an accesory exercise. they are not so condusive to generating alot of power with alot of weight.

Overhead squats are great for developing physical attributes generally not associated with weight lifting (balance, flexibility, coordination) and torso and leg strength. Not really raw strength like you would from heavier front or back squats.
