I say somewhere between 15:00-15:30. You're certainly not bad, but you're not really good either.
I was a 14:30s 5k guy and while I never scored in the 5k, I medaled in the 10k in a pretty good conference.

Qualifier: this is for D1
thatd be pretty tits if someone has enough time to do this. Pretty time consuming, and you'd have to throw out any outliers (if any)
take the average runner from every team in the nation, D1 D2 and D3, and average their times together and you will have the average time.
or you could just take a list of all 5k times run across all division and pick the median.
