It may be a mulberry. Check the roots and see if they are yellow.

Mulberry? Surely not... Any other ideas?

Definitely Morus alba, we go through this every year. It has EXTREMELY variable leaves.

Wow, really??? :o I stand corrected then! Any idea if this is Red or Black?

So, I guess it's not really a weed after all, but a nice edible! :P And I had no idea!

Interesting, because I think I've also seen a lot of another leaf type, that may be White Mulberry too then...

Fruit white to pinkish purple through reddish-black. Considered invasive in many states. Your linked page is labeled Morus rubra.
