I don't think it can because if it has more than 4 single bonds, then that means the central atom has more than 8 valence electrons, already suggesting an expanded octet. The resonance structures also have to reflect this. If an atom does not have a d-orbital or f-orbital for more electrons, it can't have more than 4 bonds.
