Youngster Rowe is signed up for county.
Young Welshman Daniel Rowe has agreed a deal with Leicestershire until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old opening bowler has spent time on trial with Glamorgan this season, but it is the Welsh county's second division rivals who have captured his signature.
Rowe is a member of the successful Cardiff/Glamorgan UCCE side which has impressed this season under the tutelage of director of cricket Kevin Lyons.
'This is a great opportunity for Daniel,' said Lyons.
'Glamorgan did have a look at him, but they decided not to pursue things and Leicestershire stepped in.'
Meanwhile, Cardiff/Glamorgan UCCE have reached the semi-finals of the BUSA Championship after finishing top of the students' table.
Victories over Oxford, Exeter and Nottingham universities have given the Welsh side home advantage in the last four, with Loughborough their probable opponents at Panteg on June 12.
'Our form is decent, to say the least,' said Lyons.
'We're confident of making the final after the way we've played this season
'We identify players we believe have the potential to play county cricket, and we are able to give them an insight into what it's like to be a professional cricketer.'
