Found this plant coming in the yard behind the shed from the neighbors yard. Can anyone tell me what it might be?

Looks like a Solanum. Did it have purple flowers? Compare to S. dulcamara:
Climbing Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara)

To check further, if you rip up some leaves, it should have a foul odor. You may want to do that with gloves on. Some people can get itchy from contact like that (like me.)
