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

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.
