All this is not particularly distinct from treating him as an adult in the first place.
Not "simply because." He took responsibility for what he did, indeed bragged about it, and in fact published the video. The fact that he referred to what he did as "rape" indicates he was mature enough to know the difference between right and wrong. It just did not occur to him that he would get caught.
Maybe. I believe some states may even require this as part of determining whether to try him as an adult, whereas in others it is non-discretionary. But rehabilitation is not the only issue. He still caused an enormous amount of harm, and represents a danger to society.
