It looks like privet to me as well; I have some in my yard that are tree-size. Welcome to Project Noah!

I think it is probably a Ligustrum (privet). The underside of the leaf is important to identify which one. They tend to be multi-stemmed from the ground shrubs that can be quite tall. Privet has escaped home yards and is often found in the woods. This spreading by emerging stems is how they crowd out other plants. Sorry I cannot be positive about the ID. Maybe another PN person in your area will help.
