I am 5'2 currently. I am growing rapidly. Last year at this time I was 4-'11. I am a true point guard, but I have the vertical and strength to be a shooting guard on a freshman level. Although by basketball tryouts I am on stride to be JV caliber. So Which should I play?
How does high school basketball work in your state? In Ohio incoming freshman can play summer ball with the high school team. You're also allowed open gyms over the summer. Did you work out with the high school team this summer?
In basketball in my state we have basketball tryouts after basketball tryouts after christmas, but my school is starting practice on the beginning of september and we have to tell the coaches what team we are trying to go for.
Without open gyms and working out for the coaches, I would just play freshman. To be honest, you're gonna need a miraculous growth spurt to be anything other than a pg. My son is currently playing sg/sf and he is 4'11 at ten.
Play whereever you get minutes. Being buried at the end of the bench for a season will destroy your chances of getting better. If you are good enough to play jv, then play there. If you can only play freshman, play there. I had to play on the freshman team, but then i worked my butt off all season. I eventually played varsity senior year, got a scholarship, and played professionally overseas.
