Can a 5D4 lock focus on a subject when you recompose?

As long as the subject itself doesn't run around, you don't need to do more than the normal thing.
One Shot AF, aim focus point at subjet, half-press, recompose and fire when ready.

To track a moving subject, the safest method is to select an AF point that's on the target, and keep it there. Multi-point selections may work, better the later (and more advanced) the camera is.
