Looks like a maple to me. Possibly Acer rubrum.

Maples grow wild in TX? Thank You!
Thats a surprise to me. BTW are sugar maples "wild" up north, or are they planted hybrids?

Depends where you mean. I think sugar maples are native to the most northern New England states and also Eastern Canada, but of course they've been transplanted to other areas where they didn't originally grow.
