It is most likely Morus alba (introduced for the silk trade which never really took off in the US). There is a native mulberry (Morus rubra) that is really similar. In addition, the two species hybridize. Hairs on the leaves and fruit length separate the two.

It looks like the morus that I saw growing in Pittsburgh. Chances are it was planted or an escape, that area has had planting and such in the past.
