The leaves look a lot like Paulownia.

The seed pods remind me of Abutilon vitifolium, but it's not that. It's probably in Malvaceae, check out Abutilon theophrasti seed pods ..

Did you plant it or is it a wild plant? Do you remember seeing what colour the flowers were?

Abutilon theophrasti is in MI, and it does look like it ..

Agree with Abutilon theophrasti. It goes by several common names around here, but Velvetleaf and Button Weed are the two I hear most often. It's a common volunteer in agricultural fields and greatly disliked by farmers. Unless you want to have many more of them next year, you might want to pull it soon. It appears to be a week or two away from producing seed.

And if my memory serves me right, they are kind of hard to pull up, as they have a long tap root.
