Go ahead! As a senior, I've gone to Homecoming and Prom with both guys and girls as groups and as dates, but it doesn't need to mean anything more if you don't want it to. Ask him if he wants to go to Homecoming with you, as friends or as not, and then work out what you want to do, like go eat dinner together before or just show up at the dance and stick together, etc. If he says no, then he says no, and it's okay. You'll still be friends. And if there's any confusion, all you need to do is talk it out and make sure you're both on the same page, and everything will be fine.
