I'm in zone 8a, North Texas and I bought some acreage. These shrubs are everywhere and seem to make good cover. They appear to grow alongside roads and under big trees. I think they're native just because I see them everywhere...

Looks a lot like a Ligustrum to also. The leaves look to small to me for L. japonicum. Possibly L. sinensis or L. quihoui. No matter which species, if it is Ligustrum then none are native. They are considered very invasive which is why you see them everywhere.
