Instead of using a statewide election to determine its electors for the Electoral College, could a state legislature select the electors itself?

Yes!

Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000) reiterated that the state "may, if it so chooses, select the electors itself", and that even though every state currently uses elections to select the electors, the State "can take back the power to appoint electors".
