Knee position on overhead squat
 
When I perform an overhead squat with a weight that is near my max, my knees tend to want to move in. Any critique or suggestions on my form would be greatly appreciated.

I would say bring your stance in a bit and keep telling yourself to push your knees out.

^- What he said.

Also what helps for me with getting set for them is just to Clean/Power Clean it up Jerk/Push Press it over then onto my back then I set my hands where i would a snatch and Jerk it from behind the head to lock it out overhead. Really helps me know where my hands are and not waste energy or time guessing where I slipped my hands while I was holding it over my skull.

When you get moving some serious weight on the OHS then you're going to have to start doing them from the rack:
