Please help ID these trees

I recently came into some free trees. I was told they were redbud but as they started leafing out it became very clear that the's arent redbuds. Looks like maybe a type of maple or mulberry..? I know they are still young so it might be a little early to try to ID it but figured I'd try anyways so I can start to plan out where to plant these
Thanks!!

Mulberry. Definitely not redbud, those have heart shaped leaves.

not quite right for mulberry either. the leaf shape and the little 'wings' at the base of the leaves look like some variety of Crataegus/hawthorn. (wouldn't necessarily be thorny at that age)

Thanks for the suggestions. Those were ones I already considered. Perhaps I'll have to wait until they grow a little more to get a better idea?
