Tree/shrub ID please

So I was clearing out an area of dense thorn bushes scrub trees and weeds and uncovered this little guy. It's about 3 feet tall right now. I have absolutely no idea it is. I think it will be hard to identify because it is so young, but if anyone could tell me what type of tree or shrub this could be, I'm open to any suggestions.

Oh, and I'm in southern Indiana (zone 6) and this thing is about 4 feet from the bank of a stream.

Looks like a juvenile Juniperus to me - i.e., a young tree that hasn't grown the mature, scale-like foliage yet.
