I see your biggest problem is that you follow the ball down from the push away. As the ball drops into the swing, so does your upper body, you have to let the ball swing from your shoulder and not with your upper body. The usual reason for this is a ball that doesn't fit your hand so that it will hang onto your hand instead of you having to squeeze it to hang onto it.

When I see people who follow the ball down with their upper body, they have trust issues and control issues mentally, they have trouble just letting the ball swing without helping it along. The usual culprit is a bad fit with too much reverse pitch in the thumb hole. What happens if they just relax their hand and swing the ball from the shoulder, the ball falls off their hand, this causes them to squeeze and catch the ball so it doesn't fall off their hand, and is a never ending cycle until they get their grip fixed.
