It all depends on your quarter speed.
My max 400m was 60 seconds with tons of speedwork from a top middle distance coach. I ran 4:49 my first year running but was very, very tough. My pr came at age 18 at 4:31. Only so fast you can go with such poor natural speed.
If you have 52 second quarter speed then you can definitely run under 4:20 by senior year.
Title. Goal for this year is 4:59. Sitting at 5:20 right now.

It will s very unlikely. I pulled up a handful of random 4:19 guys and all of them ran faster than the OP as freshmen. The most likely scenario is 4:35 for the OP.

As said above, nobody really knows. We have a kid now that's running 423 as a rising jr (so he ran that as a soph) after running a 505 as a frosh. Bodies mature at different times. Who knows, you could be the greatest runner to ever come through your school or maybe that will be your permanent PR. You just don't know.
