Do you think I will hit sub 5.0 40 yard dash if I lose enough weight?

Hi, I'm 230 pounds and I ran a 5.5 40 on turf with kind of ****ty running shoes. I'm a pretty fat person and I'm losing weight and lifting now. I'm doing 230 lb squat for 5x5, so my 5 rep max would probably be 250 or 260. If I got down to like 195 or 190 while training my sprints the whole time, do...
